Nc'nean

Nc'nean Distillery is an independent, organic whisky distillery that exists to create experimental spirits and pioneer sustainable production. B Corp certified, they use only organic Scottish barley in their distillery, which is powered only by renewable energy. They bottle their whisky in a 100% recycled clear glass bottle and divert 99.97% of their waste from landfill. As of 2021, they became the first whisky distillery in the UK to be verified as having net zero carbon emissions for scopes 1 and 2. 

The inspiration for their name, Neachneohain, was an ancient Gaelic goddess. She was known as the Queen of Spirits and a fierce protector of nature. Strong and independent, she was never afraid to walk her own path. They try to follow her ethos in everything they do.

 
Founded in March 2017 by Annabel Thomas who left her job in London in 2013 to start working on the project and return to the area of Scotland that she spent her childhood holidays. She spent four years raising funds and building the distillery from the ground up on the Morvern peninsula. Passionate about the environment, sustainability and whisky, she has set out to change the way the world thinks about whisky and do things a little differently.
